We've Moved to .Bank!
As of January 5, 2021, our website URL now ends in ‘.BANK’ instead of ‘.com’ for security purposes. Look for the ‘.BANK’ before interacting with any website of ours.
What is .BANK?
.BANK is a gated domain, like .gov or .edu, but for verified banks. Replacing .com, which can be purchased by anyone, .BANK quickly verifies that the website is authentically our bank, so you can interact with confidence when you see the ‘.BANK’ at the end of our website URL.
How is .BANK more secure?
All banks are verified and authenticated by fTLD, the .BANK administrator, prior to registering their .BANK domain, and re-verified annually thereafter. This ensures everyone using a .BANK domain is an eligible organization. Hackers and bad actors can’t get a .BANK domain to create lookalike domains for phishing and spoofing, as they can in ‘.com’ and other publicly available domains.
With the ‘.BANK’ visual authentication cue in place you can quickly confirm emails* and websites of ours are real, and avoid interactions that could lead to identity theft and financial fraud. This authentication is also an additional layer of protection for our internal and vendor communications, helping us to further secure against potential breaches.
All banks within the .BANK domain must also implement additional Security Requirements to help secure their sites and protect them, their vendors and their customers from phishing, spoofing and other cyberattacks. All banks using .BANK are monitored for compliance with these security requirements on an ongoing basis.
Do I need to do anything differently now that you’re in .BANK?
Beginning on January 5, users who visit our .com website will be automatically redirected to our .BANK site. From now on, before you enter your username and password on our website, simply look for the .BANK to authenticate the website is ours. If you have saved or bookmarked our website, be sure to update the link to .BANK to ensure a smooth transition.
You’re the first ‘.BANK’ I’ve seen, why haven’t all the other banks moved?
The move to .BANK is a business decision every bank must make, and plan for, based on its own priorities and resources. We decided it was a priority for us to enhance our security and provide our customers with an easy way to authenticate our website so we’ve made the move to .BANK.
*For right now, our .com email addresses will remain the same, but migration to .BANK is slated for mid-2021.
